No Sugarcoating Allowed with The Poptimist’s Taylor Berryman

The word “sugarcoat” is not in Taylor Berryman‘s vocabulary. As host of his own podcast, The Poptimist, Taylor leaves no stone unturned, and shows no fear as he goes deep on topics from the music industry, to the state of society, to his own life experience.

Taylor is also a musician with a number of projects in and around Nashville, as well as an avid Yankees fan. We touch all of that and a whole lot more on today’s Quinn Spinn!

Re-Connecting Through ‘A Love, Disconnected’: Another Great Chat with Gavin Shea

Much has taken place in the world, and for us as individuals, since we last welcomed Gavin Shea to The Quinn Spinn for one of our most popular episodes ever.

This time around, we go even deeper. We chat about Gavin’s new Richard String EP, A Love, Disconnected, and the ways our lives and mindsets have changed since our paths last crossed. We also learn about the EP’s original purpose — as a commentary on the state of the music industry — before coming to carry an entirely different meaning to the artist himself.

Very few stones are left unturned throughout the course of this refreshingly honest conversation.

Keeping it Real with Fresh Lady

To tell you that we discuss Fresh Lady‘s new single and music video, “Watermelon,” on this episode of The Quinn Spinn would only be scratching the surface of this one. Indeed, this might be the most real, true-to-life conversation we’ve ever had on the show.

We go in on topics like mental health, the judgments we cast on the internet, and so much more about 21st Century life. This one is an all-timer. Don’t miss it!

LISTEN: The Poptimist Gets Real About Our Internal Struggles

“The first casualty of adult life is innocence.”

I had the pleasure of being on The Poptimist (hosted by Taylor Berryman) a couple months back. What I appreciate about Taylor is his refreshing honesty, and his fearless willingness to address his journey — not just in the music industry, but through life itself.

On his latest episode, titled “Ergonomic Soapbox,” Taylor and his producer Millhouse have a frank conversation about their internal dialogue; about how the pressure we put on ourselves by overthinking lead to fear, self-doubt, and lack of trust. Those feelings can often have rippling effects on our personal and professional lives, and can cloud us from thinking clearly and focusing on the present.

This one goes deep, and it’s worth your time. Listen up!

The Many Passions of Ryan Kinder

Ryan Kinder’s passions extend far beyond music. His foundation, Kinder’s Kids, provides toys to children dealing with the aftermath of natural disasters. He’s also currently training for the Iron Man world championships in Kona, HI to honor a friend who has passed away from cancer.

Through it all, Ryan finds time to dedicate to his art. His album, Room to Dream, will be released at the end of July, and it’s packed with stories from his time navigating the ups and downs of the music industry.

Put it all together, and we have plenty to discuss on today’s episode of The Quinn Spinn!

A Conversation on Collaboration, COVID, and Love with MICVH and Steven Hall

A couple years back, we became acquainted with North Carolina-born musician MICVH at Underground Music Collective. She shared her tremendous story with us upon the release of her debut EP, Singularity, and has since uncovered new experiences to share with us.

That includes meeting and collaborating with singer-songwriter Steven Hall, who the chief songwriter and multi-instrumentalist of Swim in the Wild. Together, the pair discuss their journeys throughout the pandemic, and how a run-in with COVID brought them much closer. Then, we’ll get to hear a couple live, in-studio cuts!

Existential Musings and Exploring ‘Honeysuckle Summer’ with Charles Ellsworth

Earlier this year, Brooklyn-based troubadour Charles Ellsworth swung through Nashville and joined us to record an episode of The Quinn Spinn… and, man, this one is an all-timer!

Of course, we talk about Charles’ new album, Honeysuckle Summer, which features outstanding prog-Americana tunes including “Miami, AZ,” “Max & Geraldine,” and “A White Cross on a Highway.” However, that’s just scratching the surface. What we have here is an insightful, undeniably honest conversation between two 30-something creators. We touch on everything, from life on the road, to the adjustments we make on the creative journey, and the importance of discovering who we are. We even show some love to our high school football coaches, who helped mold us into the men we are today!
